SELEX Wins $30M Polish Maritime Radar Surveillance Contract
Finmeccanica group company SELEX Sistemi Integrati has been chosen to build an automated radar surveillance system (ZSRN) for Poland’s coastal waters. The contract is worth around EUR 30 million, and will see SELEX Sistemi Integrati act as representative of a temporary consortium formed together with a number of local companies. Poland has a maritime border stretching for around 534 km, and the new system will be used by Polish border police, but the information gathered will also be passed on to other institutions such as the navy where appropriate.
By the end of 2006 Poland will have an integrated network comprising radar sites (electro-optics systems and air and coastal surveillance radar), two national control centres (one of which will provide back-up and training) and a number of regional centres. The new systems are to be integrated with those currently in operation, and SELEX will also provide surveillance and rapid response transport. See corporate release [PDF format]
